I couldn't be more excited to write about one of America's favorite annual lingerie fashion shows: The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. As females, we look forward to this show filled with gorgeous models, exciting lingerie fashions (not like we're wearing any of this...), and of course the fabulous performers! And to add to my excitement, this year's show featured my two favorite model besties: Kendall Jenner
and Gigi Hadid
strutting the runway.
Side note: As we all sit there watching the bodies on these girls, don't feel bad if you found yourself eating a bag of chips while envying their bodies on the screen. I was eating a bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios, HA.
The show aired on December 8, 2015, 10 p.m. on CBS. The opening was similar to that of a television show with opening credits, featuring shots of the models with their names below their beautiful faces. The first round of fashions were stunning with brown thigh-high, suede, fringe boots on Candice and a fabulous red-and-blue ensemble on my girl, Kendall.
From there after, some brief history on the show from the people behind Victoria's Secret, The Weekend performed his hit, "In the Night," while the leggy models walked past him in sexy lace, feathers and one of my favorite looks worn by...the picture says it all.
I love the fun interviews with the Angels backstage. The girls shared their favorite Instagram accounts while revealing tips on how to take the perfect selfie. You know, I was taking notes on this one!
America got to meet some of the newest Angels and how their lives changed since becoming apart of one of the world's largest fashion shows. Our beloved favorites, Lily Aldridge (the lucky Angel who got to wear the $2 million Fantasy Bra), Adrianna Lima and Candice Swanepoel all dominated the stage as the veterans of the show that they are.
Other performers included Ellie Goulding
and Selena Gomez
. One of my favorite moments (I had many) had to be during Selena's performance of "Me & My Girls." I loved the lyrics of the song, the costumes the girls were wearing and the whole vibe of that performance as it screamed, "girl power!" But can we please take a minute to say how hot Selena looked? Hey girl, hey! Bet J. Biebs was eating his heart out.
To make ourselves feel better about ourselves eating those chips and Cheerios, the Angels revealed that they don't credit their ahhh-mazing bods to genetics as they literally spend hours in the gym preparing for the fashion show. Some Angels even said they work out twice a day. Okay, I'm currently putting down the Cheerios as I write this.
Another great moment was the casting shoot from when Gigi auditioned to be an Angel and got offered the job right then and there. These models have to work just as hard as the rest of us in pursuing their dreams, they face rejection, too, and don't let it hold them back.
The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2015 was amazefest and made me seriously want to hit the gym and eat kale salads all day everyday, but that's besides the point. Between the Angels, performances and the fashions, this has to be one of the best VS Fashion Shows to date.
